Thailand, this is one of my wishlist countries of travel. Why? Well, one of my favorite restaurants serves authentic Thai food (which will be featured in a future post in another blog coming soon!). So, I want there and enjoy the cuisines first hand with family and friends.
This is another dream come true. After the Floating Market in Damnoen Sudak, the taxi driver brought us to the elephant ride just 5 minutes from the market. It is called the “Elephant Village”. In there you can see a lot of elephants lined-up waiting for customers. You’ll pay 2000 baht ($63-65) per elephant. You can also buy bananas worth a dollar for the elephant if u want to experience feeding them. A little expensive but really worth it. It’s a 30-minute ride in their man made forest and elephants will even walk through the rivers… And after the trip the elephant-driver will sell his carved-ivory. And we bought two necklace carved-elephant pendants worth 250 baht ($7-8). It’s all up to you if you’ll gonna buy one, but we opt to, for a souvenir. : )
If you’ll visit bangkok never miss this one of a kind experience.
